CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $5,010,499

Never mind the lines
Lots of cap space... this year that is...
Next year (when CBA is set) we have Hagelin, Stepan, McD, Sauer and Anisimov to resign. Definitely will impair the ability in adding too much cap long term cap space this year imo.
A one year deal with R Whitney might therefore be an option for say 4 M for a one year deal moving him through the lineup?? (Would mean no more Mitchell - ie around $3,250 M in added caphit)
If nothing else is worked out via trades or FA (unlikely imo)... Ryan for Dubinsky++ would of course look very nice, but will The Ducks pull that trade? Doubtful... Nash has too big a caphit imo, but Sather actively pursued him offering a huge package (imo) at the deadline - so who knows? One can always dream about Parise - but I think we cannot afford him long-term.
Also maybe we try signing this Schultz fella from U of Wisconsin on the D if Sauer is out longterm/for good. He might start in Harftord for half a season and work his way up, (ev then replacing Strålman).
